It was very difficult and I was in my early 30's at the time. I can't imagine what it would be like for a guy in his teens or early 20's.

I put my success down to knowing my triggers very well, being mindful as much as I can and taking action when I saw my triggers approaching.

Practicing mindfulness meditation to be aware of your cravings before they get to strong is very helpful. Have a list of backup activities to do in an emergency (pushups, going for a walk and keep walking until its not a problem). Also remind yourself of the benefits and write up a specific list of why nofap is important to you. Refer to this list during the bad times. More time out of the house is better than time in front of electronic screens.

Well done, yeah that's the thing I'm early 20s and a couple of months ago I started to become 10x hornier pretty much overnight. Aiming for 90 days is objectively speaking, harder than it's ever been. Even though I know it would be worth it.

I actually did a dhamma retreat some time ago, got the gist of it and am still carrying it in daily life even though I'm not into mindfulness meditation anymore.

Good idea on placing reminders I haven't done that yet, reframing is a very powerful technique indeed.
